Add quota support [enhanchement]
Last modified: 2009-01-19 03:56:05 EST
Description of problem:
postfix currently lack of qouta support
on Maildir creation time, wich is pretty
annoying for a MTA.
A proposed patch by http://vda.sourceforge.net is aviable.
Proposed and functionality tested pack of rawhide:
Excerpt of main.cf for usage:
virtual_mailbox_limit_inbox = yes
virtual_mailbox_limit_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-mboxquotas.cf
virtual_mailbox_limit_override = yes
virtual_overquota_bounce = yes
virtual_maildir_limit_message = "Quota exceeded. Recipient's mailbox is full."
virtual_create_maildirsize = yes
This patch is floating around since years,personally
tested several years in some enterpriese enviroments
with thousands of accouns, no problem so far using
it on any versions of postfix.
Any news ? We are getting F11 soon ..
- Nowdays MTA really should be quota
aware on booth SMTP and IMAP/POP3 side,
in my very opinion.
- Some people would use postfix internal
mail injector which lack of quota support,
but I agree that on most cases folk will
choose dovecot/currier/cyrus's injector
which yes are quota aware, thats why upstream
dont want to use this pach, they forward and
ask you to use other mail injector than
postfix internal one, since in most cases
postfix is used in conjunction with one
This really needs to go through upstream. If they don't want to include it, that's bad.
The patch is non-trivial and with postfix I'd like to stay as close to upstream as possible.
